Chicken and basil toasties

Forget slaving over a stove tonight - pick up a barbecued chicken on the way home and turn it into these super tasty, super easy toasties.

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 8 slices sourdough bread
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1/3 cup basil pesto
* 30g baby rocket
* 1 cup semi-dried tomatoes, drained
* 1 1/2 cups shredded barbecued chicken
* 170g bocconcini cheese, thinly sliced

1. Preheat a grill on medium-high heat. Grill both sides bread for 3 minutes or until toasted. Brush both sides of bread with oil. Spread 1 side of each bread slice with pesto.
2. Layer rocket, semi-dried tomatoes and chicken on 6 bread slices. Season chicken with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
3. Arrange bocconcini on chicken. Top with remaining bread slices, pesto side down. Cut each sandwich in half. Serve immediately.
